FUL SIGHT EXAMINATION AND READING OF DISEASE
(whereby lie diagnoses your disease without looking at the tongue, feeling of the
pulse or'asking questions) AND ALL MAGNETIC TREATMENTS RE
QUIRED BY THE PATIENT
ABSOLUTELY FREE OF ALL 9HARQE!
The marvellous cures made by Dr. Barbrick and Prof. Hall have attracted the
attention of thousands of people in every walk of life and given to the sick and
suffering new life and hope. That the deaf are made to hear, the blind to see, and
the lame to walk; that the unsightly tumor is made to waste away and the foul
cancer cleansed and dried up simply by the touch of the hand and the applications
of their treatment seems beyond belief, but such are the claims made by those who
have been treated by them and you are given the chance to test for yourself
whether such things are true. The barbarous, unnatural and unnecessary opera
tions, the harsh and painful treatments,' the needless exposures in examinations
and the old methods used by the ordinary practitioner are all done away with.
The treatment is at once scientilic, sensible, and progressive, safe in its application
and positive in its results. Although they treat all forms of chronic, long stand
ing, obscure and difficult cases and cure many so-called incurable cases they wisli
it thoroughly understood that if after a careful examination of your case they are
in doubt as to the curability of it, they will frankly tell you so, and they reserve
the right to reject any or all cases.
ALL DISEASES AND DEFORMITIES TREATED.
CATARRH CURED. Consumption in
the incipient stage, bronchitis, asthma,
rheumatism, diseases of the nose, throat,
lungs, stomach, liver, kidneys, scrofula,
sores, ulcers, and all chronic blood

and cured.
NERVOUS DISEASES. Nervous de
bility from any cause, hysteria, neuras
thenia, chorea, St. Vitus' dance, epilepsy,
locomotor ataxia, palsy and all such dis
eases successfully treated by their "Tis
sue Cell Building" treatment.
DISEASES OF , WOMEN. Laaies ex
amined without exposure and all dis
eases pesuliar to their sex cured without
rings, Pessaries, Supporters, etc., by new
and pleasant home methods.
Are You Sick ? Are You Suffering ? If so, Call on Them!!
Not only will you be surprised at their wonderful knowledge of disease, their
plain, concise explanation of every cause and effect, but at the marvelous rapidity
of their new common sense, rational treatment w hich goes to the very seat of the
trouble, giving almost instant relief, and in all cases that have not progressed too
far, absolute and permanent cure. No person should doctor any further or take
any more medicine before consulting them.
IF YOU ARE DISEASED AND II AVE LOST HOPE,
IF YOU HAVE FAILED OF A CURE NEVER DESPAIR.

BRIGHT BOYS AND GIRLS
Making Collections of the Beautiful
Photographs Given with Halt
Breakfast Food.
Collecting the beautiful photographs
found in Malt Breakfast Food is the
most sensible fad that children ever
took up.
A beautiful carbon photograph is put
in every package of Malt Breakfast Food
that leaves the factory, and these artistic
pictures of animals, babies, flowers,
landscapes and ideal heads will do much
to foster the love of the artistic and
beautiful.
Many a home now lias Malt Break
fast Food for its morning cereal because
Johnnie or Mary asked mother to buy
it in order that they could have the pho
tographs, and now mother and father
will have no other cereal. Malt Break
fast Food is simple, honest food, good to
eat, delicious and satisfying, two full
pounds in every package.
There is nothing queer about Malt
Breakfast Food, not even the name. It
is intended to be cooked before serving,
and in this way the two-pound package
becomes twelve pounds of hot, delicious
steaming breakfast cereal, that goes
eight times as far, pound for pound, as
the ready cooked food.
In addition to the 3x4 photographs
that are in every package of Malt Break
fast Food, larger photographs, that
would cost two or three dollars at the
art stores, are given in return for cou
pons found in the packages. These are
expensive carbon photographs, entirely
without advertising, and would adorn
the finest homes.
Meat is high, eggs are higher, but the
price of Malt Breakfast Food stays the
same as ever, although the package has
has been increased recently. It is the
most economical of all foods, and your
grocer will tell you that it letums your
money's worth more fully than any other
cereal on his shelves.

From the circular we quote the following:
" Once in a while I hear the remark made
that it would be better to have celebra
tions every other year, or once in a few
years ; but I want to emphasize the fact
that the real object of Old Home week 'S
best subserved by an annual celebration,
the object being to make the absent sons
and daughters feel certain that by plan
ning to come home in a certain week each
year they can always find their old friends
and companions. If towns do not attempt
to make the celebrations too elaborate and
too expensive, it is a very simple matter to
keep them up annually."
